Seismic Risk Analysis For California State Water Project - Reach C
This series includes technical reports prepared by faculty, students and staff who are associated with the John A. Blume Earthquake Engineering Center at Stanford University. While the primary focus of Blume Center is earthquake engineering, many of the reports in this series encompass broader topics in structural engineering and materials, computational mechanics, geomechanics, structural health monitoring, and engineering life-cycle risk assessment. Each report includes acknowledgments of the specific sponsors for the report and underlying research. In addition to providing research support, the Blume Center provides administrative support for maintaining and disseminating the technical reports.

A seismic hazard map for the region described as "Reach C" for the California Water Project is developed in this report. "Reach C" for this work is defined as that portion of the California Water Project from Tehachapi Afterbay up to and including the Perris Dam and Lake. The key facilities within this reach include: 1. Tehachapi Afterbay 2. Cottonwood Power Plant Site 3. Pearblossom Pumping Plant 4. Mojave Siphon 5. Silverwood Dam and Lake 6. San Bernardino Tunnel 7. Devil Canyon Power Plant 8. Santa Ana Valley Pipeline 9. Perris Dam and Lake 10. Perris Dam Subcenter The report discusses the data base, the seismic sources considered and the resulting iso-acceleration maps. Relative "risks" of various sites and their implications are presented.
